Apply as an Intern



The Iowa Department of Human Services currently offers internships in the following areas: Adult Services, Child Protective Assessment, Child Protective Services, and Adoption.  Internships are unpaid.  However, we are willing to work with applicants to develop a suitable schedule and help interns to receive academic credit for their work.  Our interns are given first-hand experience working with social workers in the field.  Internship dates are flexible but typically correspond with the academic calendar and last for one semester (fall semester, spring semester, and summer)

To apply: Please send your completed application to the Volunteer Coordinator along with a copy of your resume and cover letter. 

For more information contact the Volunteer Coordinator at 515-725-2743, or by email at
